RRC completes investigation into Reznik's case

The Rostov Regional Court (RRC), which is considering an appeal against the sentence to journalist and blogger Sergey Reznik, has refused to study the written evidence in the case. The judge has announced the end of the judiciary inquiry and transition to the debate phase.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on January 22 the Leninsky Court of Rostov-on-Don sentenced Reznik to three years in prison with account of the journalist's already served punishment imposed in November 2013. Also, the journalist was banned for two years to engage in professional activities. His defence appealed against the verdict; and on April 22 the RRC began the appeal consideration of Reznik's case.

During the court session on April 27, after examining the evidence for seven hours, the judge declared the judicial investigation over; and it means that there are still less hopes for the change of the verdict, as Tumas Misakyan, a lawyer of the Moscow Bar Association "Advocates' Law Partnership", has commented on the situation to the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

"My opinion about what happens in court in relation to Sergey Reznik, that it's an unfair trial, has further strengthened," said Tumas Misakyan.
